This month has absolutely whizzed by in a blur of busy weeks and slow weekends. It has felt like this month, since we enjoyed a family Fireworks night out has been all about getting prepared, for the big C and baby no.3 in January. Having done this pregnancy thing twice before you think I would have remembered what month 7 & 8 feel like, a whole lot of sleeplessness, heartburn and backache in my case! This has all improved in recent weeks with some new medication and thankfully little F’s sleep is back to where he was before and we have even been treated to a few nights of complete sleep recently, unfortunately with a newborn arriving in January this is going to be very short-lived.
We absolutely love the run up to the big C in the Howeshold and I have been using the excuse of a January baby to kick things off a little early this year ( with the intention of packing it all away pretty early) and as I sit writing this the tree is up and Buble is on! ( Mr H not so convinced by the music…) Little F has so nearly mastered walking and little D has been on her very best behaviour with the promise that Santa (and his robins!) are ALWAYS watching…. not to mention that she will literally do ANYTHING for Trolls stickers..hehe
This month’s photo was actually taken by my Dad ( Grandpa!) which is a miracle as he is not the most techy person… but we managed to set it up for him and despite the sky being very grey he got some good ones of us all. We are on our annual breakfast and tree shopping day (yes very early!) but I will save the rest of that day for anther post!
I am loving this month: baby swimming lessons with little F, snuggling on the sofa in the evenings with blankets and smelly candles, watching the fireworks with D, getting all the children’s cute winter clothes out, our annual Christmas tree buying trip with Grandpa, meeting a friends’ brand new squishy arrival.
Mr H is Loving: pretending not to be into Christmas already! sneaking extra Troll blind bags in the shopping to make treasure hunts for little D, watching The Missing (finale tonight!!) a little bit more sleep, a new pint glass for evening beers!
Little D is loving: her Trolls sticker album (which she announced to Mr H makes her feel VERy happy) playing with glowsticks on fireworks night, eating clementines, playing with the Christmas fuzzy felts and playmobil that came out the loft (oops a bit early)
Litte F is loving: eating bananas and blueberries, walking around the living room with his arms in the air and a big grin on his face, sleeping ALL night, his new pillow, playing with any toys with wheels, saying uh ohhhhhhhhh………
